Infinifatshion February 2019

It’s that time of year again: Infinifatshion February! All month I’ll be posting a photo a day on Instagram to highlight the lack of access (to clothing and so many other basic needs) that the fattest among us experience. In today’s episode I’m talking about why the term “infinifat” exists, what it means, and why

Episode 36: #Infinifatshionfebruary: Why Clothes Matter

Infinifatshionfebruary: Why Clothes Matter Plus fashion is a booming industry, and every year more and more retailers are getting with the program and offering plus options.

Finite Possibilities–Car Shopping for Superfat and Infinifat People

Finite Possibilities: Car Shopping for Superfat and Infinifat People A couple weeks ago I got a frantic DM on Instagram from a fellow infinifat. She needed to know what kind of car I drive and if I had any recommendations for vehicles she might fit in. Unfortunately, this is one question that I don’t have

Episode 37: Overcoming Shame–Pod Listener Angel Finds Her Freedom

Overcoming Shame–Pod Listener Angel Finds Her Freedom I have to tell you that I’ve been having some mixed feelings now that we’re at the end of #infinifatshionfebruary. I just wasn’t sure that what I’ve been trying to do was really getting through to anyone, but then I met Angel. She emailed me on Monday, and
